how does that impact the way that the candidates have been campaigning? >> well, first lady michelle obama will be here when early voting begins on tuesday so you have that little component, but overall, i mean, as you sort of alluded to, both candidates have already been here a ton. they've been here, you know, i don't know, 50 times. we have a neat web page on our website dispatch.com that tracks this. but, you know, i guess we'll see once early voting begins if they stop coming, then i guess that shows -- that would show just how much importance they had put on getting here before the early vote comes out. >> you know, joe, i mentioned that one of your colleagues interviewed mitt romney. can you give me a sense of his confidence level for ohio as expressed in that interview? >> well, i mean, yeah. as you might expect, i mean, he says he's going to win ohio. i mean, you know, polls be darned, what do you say at this point?
